Our favorite waffler is dropping hints that he's done...again.
Yeah...you read that correctly.
Brett Favre is, according to published reports, telling the Minnesota Vikings that he's retiring.
More from Judd Zulgad and StarTribune.com RIGHT HERE
We do know that the Waffle King had surgery this summer on his ankle and he's worried that it still isn't right. We do know that the Vikings opened camp...just like the rest of the NFL...last week.
And we know that if he really does go through with it, they are kinda screwed now. However, he has cried wolf so many times about retiring that we are to say the least, skeptical.
Yes, believe it or not, Brett Favre has said he was retiring before.
Last year, he said it and then finally showed up at the Vikings training camp on August 18th. With that date in mind, obviously, there is time for Brett to do what he does best, which is change his mind. If he did follow through with this, it would leave the Vikes with Tavaris Jackson, rookie Joe Webb, and Sage Rosenfels to run the show, something the Vikings were obviously not comfortable with last season when they brought the Waffle King in.
It may be too late to find someone else.
News crews were sent scurrying to Vikes HQ in Mankato for any kind of live shot at practice... Thanks to our friends at KSTP-TV/ABC5 for their presence...
Chris Long was waiting for the purple-clad version of Godot...
Stay tuned. Obviously, we'll update this story throughout the day.
Since we are all way too familiar with Brett Favre's highlights as a Quarterback, we give you the song about the man heretofore called "The Waffle King".
